The crowning jewel of Peru, Machu Picchu. This is the reason many come to Peru, and it’s where I ended my trip after three days of trekking the Lares Trek, you can find out more about that here in: Part One, Part Two and Part Three here.
Machu Picchu, one of the seven wonders of the world is a place you have to visit if you can, it’s one of the most beautiful places on the planet and not the easiest to visit, so in this post I’ll drop a few tips in, as well as explaining my own Machu Picchu experience.
Welcome to the third and final day of hiking the Lares Trek to Machu Picchu. Catch up on the first two posts here:
Welcome to Day Two of the Lares Trek, the journey to Machu Picchu. Day Two of the Lares Trek is notoriously difficult. You reach an altitude of 4,800 metres, hiking up steep, steep hills, to the peak of a mountain, which can be covered in layers of snow and ice depending on the weather! We had knee-deep snow to battle at some points. It’s a true journey.
Catch up on Day One and a bit of Lares background here.
More than anything, this poa is a long, long gallery of pictures taken very high up in the Andes.
The Lares Trek may not be the traditional route to Machu Picchu, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less worth the effort. The average route and the one I took (organised by G Adventures) was around 21 miles of hiking spanning three days. And it’s bloody tough but oh so worth it.

It’s hard to look after a home. Whether it’s one you own yourself, one you share with friends or family, or one you rent. It’s always hard. I’ve rented my fair share of old homes and had to learn how to take care of these as quick as possible.
Working with Certas Energy, I’m here to share how I’ve worked on some issues in my home, as well as share some tips from Certas Energy and an infographic about smart devices
that could change the way you #FixYourOwnHome
